David Iacovazzi-Pau Exhibit - Carnegie Center
The Exhibit runs from July 24th – September 26th at the Carnegie Center.
Born 1978 in Luxembourg, David Iacovazzi-Pau began his education in fine arts from the age of 15 in Belgium. He later attended the Centre Académique des Arts in Luxembourg and immigrated to the United States in 1997, studying at Indiana University Southeast. Iacovazzi-Pau’s work focuses on the human figure and is a visual diary of the people he encounters. His series reveal different aspects of the sitters and the link between their physical appearance and personality. David writes, “My aim is to portray idiosyncrasies and evoke the mood of the subject in order for the portrait to have an accurate likeness and affect. The work reflects what I sense about a person and is a documentation of my community.” He begins by taking multiple photographs of his subject, and then uses the photographs to create several drawings which become the source material for the paintings. The final result is a subjective impression of an individual and is representative of the relationship between the artist and the subject.
